The Old Honda Civic Type R

The release of the brand new Honda Civic Type R is imminent, and to celebrate, Honda are inviting fans to attend a unique race weekend at the famous Nürburgring in Germany where they will get the chance to take a close-up look at the brand new Civic Type R, meet legendary racing drivers, as well as cheer on Team Castrol Honda as they compete in the ADAC Zurich 24-hour sports car race.

 The exclusive race weekend at Germany’s most hallowed and respected racetrack, the Nürburgring, is in anticipation of the launch of the all-new Honda Civic Type R – which has already been tagged the “race car for the road” – and follows its recent unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show, where Formula 1 ace Jenson Button was in attendance.

With a three-day package priced at just €175 per person, Honda fans and buyers alike will be given the chance to watch the historical ADAC Zurich 24-hour sports car race, a spectacle which for the first time ever will also include an exhilarating round of the FIA WTCC.

The weekend, which will include a VIP entrance ticket that enables Honda fans to access the paddock, will be topped off by the opportunity to watch Team Castrol Honda driving legends Tiago Monteiro and Gabriele Tarquini.

The three-day package will also include camping accommodation, as well as a hands-on look at the brand new Civic Type R. Other goodies at the one-of-a-kind event include a garage tour, and a unique opportunist to attend a Q&A session involving the drivers.

And extra-lucky attendees will also be given the chance to do a lap of the Nürburgring in their very own Civic, a lap which will take place a few hours before the 24 hour race commences.

An exact release date for the new Honda Civic Type R has not yet been set, but the price range is believed to be in the region of £30,000.
